Challenge: A customer was standardizing and automating its global third-party risk management program, and the company needed configurable risk-based screening and custom open-source search capability in a globally integrated workflow solution. The company also wanted to accelerate its onboarding and due-diligence processes — while controlling costs and ensuring procedural variances were standardized.
Challenge: A company that offers 65,000 products in more than 40,000 stores across 100 countries was seeking more transparency in its supply chain. A recent promotion involved seven stock keeping unit numbers of new products — packaged in 196,000 cartons — which were to be shipped in over 150 ocean containers. The company wanted increased visibility and streamlined communication for a competitive, consistent price.
Challenge: Global automakers have highly optimized supply chains, yet a lack of end-to-end visibility limits their ability to make further gains. For one carmaker, this made it difficult to provide accurate ETAs. In turn, this led to significant buffering and higher opportunity costs.
Challenge: A global third-party logistics provider (3PL) was looking for distance calculations between fixed locations to be used for cost analysis, bid response and rate quoting. The company also wanted predictive calculation capabilities for shipment delivery delays based on real-time traffic incident data.
Challenge: A European leader in freight exchange solutions wanted to further enhance its successful planning and calculation program for transport companies by providing near real-time truck location information to telematics and logistics managers.
Challenge: A U.S. furniture importer with over 100 shipments per month from China experienced costly demurrage and delays due to untimely entry filings. Lengthy and complex invoices made it difficult to determine whether the goods — which included bed parts and other furniture components — should be classified as individual parts, complete beds or other complete furniture items. These time-consuming entries resulted in late filings, and the delays put the company at risk for chargebacks from big-box retailers.
Challenge: A shipper’s procurement team, responsible for moving tens of thousands of truckloads per day, was manually aggregating carrier bids — a costly, time-intensive process. The shipper needed a solution that could handle its high volume and manage relationships with several hundred carriers.
Challenge: A company needed to leverage supply chain and sales and operation planning (S&OP) processes to increase efficiency across its expanding product portfolio — and become a top supplier to its customers.
